Wheel of Chance 5 Reel Slots

Wheel-of-Chance-5-ReelAs the name will tell you, this is the 5 reel version of Wheel of Chance and one of the two games to sport this title in Wager Gaming’s collection. The other version is a simple 3 reel slot, so they are quite different in the way they play. The graphics are better obviously, though it doesn’t quite manage to make itself look modern. It’s a bit too cartoonish, but most of the symbols manage to look good.

You know from the name already that it has 5 reels, so I’ll mention that it also has 20 lines to offer. The features are worthy of a title that tries to be very different from the classic variant, including pretty much everything you could want, including the bonus game, a wild, free spins, a scatter symbol and multipliers. The jackpot of $80,000 is a very nice prize that you can go after.

Features of Wheel of Chance 5 Reel

The game is much more generous with its features than the other game, using all the options a modern game should have, including a wild symbol, a bonus symbol, a scatter, free games and multipliers.

The Wild Diamond does exactly that, acts as the wild symbol and gets to substitute for another symbol. There is at least one advantage for a combination that gets formed as the result of a wild contributing to it, and that’s the multiplier of x2 that is so often used together with it. Also common is the fact that the wild offers its own jackpot, a total of 8,000 coins being won when five of these wild Diamonds cover a payline. As little as two Diamonds will be able to give you their prize though, as long as they appear in consecutive order, from left to right.


Next, the scatter symbol, which shows us a girl standing next to the wheel of chance, which has stopped at the Free Spin reward. It doesn’t just give you free spins though, it also awards some impressive looking payouts, going as high as 500 times the bet.

Free Games Feature

The requirement to get the free spins started is identical to the system from many other games, with 3+ scatters being needed. The result is a round of 10 spins and a multiplier that triples all the prizes for the duration. Winning extra spins is possible as you go through the original 10, but the multiplier will no longer apply to them.

Bonus Game

Finally, we have the bonus game and the Bonus Wheel symbol which triggers it. It has to appear on an active line, with two symbols that are on the 2nd and 4th reels. The more lines that go through those two symbols, the bigger the payout.

Betting options and jackpots

The coins have a value between $0.01 and $10, and since a single coin is used per line that also constitutes the range of the line bet. You get 20 lines, so the bets reach a top value of $200.

You’re going to win 8,000 coins in the best case scenario, before any multipliers get involved. That’s a $80,000 top jackpot.

Design and symbols

A bit cartoonish, the design of Wheel of Chance 5 Reel nonetheless manages to make itself pleasant and easy to enjoy. There are all kinds of rewards on the reels, and you even get to see the guy that has won a trip and he’s enjoying himself on the beach. Both the overall graphics and some of the symbols look a bit too basic or old, but they don’t manage to ruin it for you.

Symbols: Bonus Wheel (bonus), Game Show Assistant (500x bet, scatter), Diamond (wild, 8,000 coins), Stacks of Cash (1,000 coins), Cruise (500 coins), Red Sports Car (400 coins), Man on beach (300 coins), Luggage (300 coins), A (200 coins), E (200 coins), I (100 coins), O (100 coins) and U (100 coins).


Is It Worth Playing?

Depending on which type of game you prefer, you can go for either the 3 or 5 reel version, they’re both decent titles in their own categories.

You will find Wheel of Chance 5 Reel at any online casino which chooses to use software from Wager Gaming, playable either for free or for real money.
